An access log contains a record of all files that have been requested by the visitors while browsing your website. The list is comprehensive, so if you have a web page with 2 embedded images, for instance, all of the three files shall be in the log, not just the page. An access log usually features the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for every file in human-readable form, so you can get a good idea about the most popular files on your Internet site. The log, that is also frequently named "raw data", is an addition to the web stats which you typically get with a hosting account, not an alternative. One example why you might need this type of a log is if you intend to use some software on your PC to prepare a report about the website’s functionality, but you do not want to use the standard graphs and tables that come with the server-generated site stats.

Access Log Manager in Shared Hosting

When you order a shared hosting from us, you shall be able to decide if access logs must be created and for which domains or subdomains in your account this should be done. You'll be able to enable this feature from the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia CP, which comes with all shared accounts. Any domain name you host or subdomain you create shall be listed there and you see an On/Off option next to each one of them, so you can easily trigger or disable the generation of access logs independently for every site that you have. You may save a log to your laptop or computer by clicking on the Download link that you shall see inside the same exact section of the CP. The link shall be available even after you stop the log generation, so you'll still have access to the data collected by our system.

Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our advanced hosting platform will generate access logs for every site hosted inside a semi-dedicated server account, assuming that this function is permitted. All domain names and subdomains that you have shall be listed in the Access/Error Logs section of the Hepsia Control Panel, which we supply with all the accounts, so if you'd like our system to start creating logs for any of them, you should just click on the little button on the right side of the respective domain/subdomain and switch the default Off option to On. You may stop this function anytime by following the exact same steps. You will find a Download link for each and every log within the exact same section of the Control Panel, so you could save the content gathered by our system in .txt format with only a click. An existing log file can be downloaded even after the option has been disabled, so you'll still be able to look at the data that's already been generated.
